This sustainable canvas body belt bag / market trader money belt is great if you need an accessible pouch for storing money and/or valuables. With two front zipped pockets and one on the rear (facing the body) for your most valuable items, this adjustable waist money belt is perfect for market traders and car boot sellers, or just for anyone out and about exploring the city or countryside. Going on holiday or to a festival but don't want to lug around a full handbag or shoulder bag? Then this is the bag for you! It's small enough to not be a burden, it attaches round your waist so you don't need to keep track of it constantly and you're left hands-free. The zips and fastenings are sturdy and the canvas material is thick and strong. The belt can be adjusted using two D-Ring fasteners to provide a secure and comfortable fit.
Similar to a bum bag or waist-pack but more low-profile, this sustainable body belt bag offers a stylish look while also being environmentally friendly thanks to hemp and organic cotton. Can be worn cross-body or round the waist depending on your preference.
Hemp is the strongest plant fibre around, so you know that this bag will stand up to heavy wear and tear. Many cheaply made bags are simply not built to last, meaning that there is a cycle of buy, break and buy again. Keeping the same bag for many years is much more environmentally friendly than buying a new bag every few years. With many bags being made from synthetic materials (polyester), the environmental cost of producing new bags every few years and transporting them half way across the world to be sold in shops here in the UK is astounding. These natural fibre bags are built to last, and you'll find yourself still enjoying them for years to come, helping the climate and environment.
Hemp is a wonderful environmentally friendly material. The plants themselves require far less water than cotton to grow, they require no pesticides or chemical fertilizers of any kind, are able to grow organically in almost any region of our planet, and require far less land to produce the same amount of fibre as cotton. The plants draw carbon dioxide from our atmosphere at a greater rate than any other crop or forest, in one growing season an acre of hemp plants can absorb more CO2 than an acre of trees does in their entire lifetime! It's incredible! Hemp plants also leave the soil in a better condition than before they were planted, drawing out toxins from the ground and relieving soil compaction with their deep root systems. These same root systems also help to prevent soil erosion by binding the soil together, preventing local waterways from becoming clogged.
